what is the difference between cheque and draft
 Question Submitted By :: Audit
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
An important difference between the two is that a draft can
be issued only when the amount of the draft is submitted to
the bank. Whereas a cheque can be issued irrespective of
whether there is balance in the issuer's account or not.
Incase there is no balance in the issuer's account at the
time when the cheque is presented to the bank for
encashment, the cheque will get bounced.

Cheque and DD, both are negotiable instruments and to be
honored. But the basic diffrence is, check will be issued
by an account holder and whereas DD can be issued by a
banker only.... Cheque may get rejected due to lot many
reasons....but DD will not get rejected if u present.
(Some DDs were not accepted by Scheduled commercial banks,
as the DDs were issued by some problematic Co-op banks.
There are some other differences too.

For issuing cheques, there wont be any commission if it is
to be transacted in the same bank. But for getting as well
as for cancelling the DD, we need to pay commission. DD can
be acquired from the bank by paying the required amount for
that, whereas the cheque will be worthful only when the
indicated amount is available in your savings account.
otherwise the cheque will bounce.
DD can be used by any unauthorised person if it is not
mentioned as account payee only.

account later it may be liable for criminal liability.
